Inspired by the Thai dish pad bai horapa, this pork stir-fry gets its main flavors from the horapa—that’s sweet Thai basil. The herb has a more bold and peppery flavor than its Italian counterpart, matching up nicely against the savory overtones of ingredients like soy sauce and garlic. It also adds an extra leafy accent to accompany the veggies—here, that’s bok choy, the crisp Asian green.

Wash and dry all produce. Mince garlic. Halve lime; cut one half into wedges. Trim and discard bottom root ends from bok choy, then thinly slice stalks and leaves crosswise. Halve, peel, and thinly slice shallot. Pick basil leaves from stems and roughly chop half.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, tossing, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add pork, breaking it up into pieces and spreading it out in a layer. Cook without stirring until browned on bottom, about 4 minutes. Toss in all but a pinch of garlic. Cook until fragrant and pork is cooked through, 1 minute more.
